Thanks for your very informative follow up to the original question.
I suspect that you are at least partially right - that black ones (or any
color for that matter) may have been painted at times in order to keep the
production line moving. But, I also suspect that there were differences in
how various factories did the knobs. Some - W for example - may have had a
better supply of colored plastic (opposed to painted) than other locations.
Just ask the Canadians about the differences in Canadian VS US built Vairs -
of the same model year.
I doubt there is a truly definitive way to answer the question 45 years
after the fact.
